This page is all about pumpkin carving ideas for 2017. Halloween is right around the corner, and this year I’ve decided to look at alternative designs and ideas. From cutting out a triangular or (any other shape notch on the top hole or lid)  before you hollow out your pumpkin (this makes putting the lid back on easy and simple) to utilizing different tools, using stencils, using toothpicks, dry ice and more, this page should give you plenty of pumpkin carving ideas. There are several videos below that provide many alternative options to traditional carving!

  • Toothpicks-Do you feel like testing your creative abilities? Toothpicks can be used to add teeth, horns, ears, arms, or plenty of other extensions to your pumpkin. You may decide to buy an extra pumpkin for spare parts?
  • Stencils-or patterns can be used to trace out your design before carving. Stencils can make the detail work and precision cutting easier for some people. If you’re looking for a great place to find stencils you can try http://www.pumpkinpile.com/ or simply try a Google search for pumpkin stencils or pumpkin patterns. There are probably thousands of free stencils that you can print out online.
  • Special tools-The more precise you need to be, the smaller the tools you’ll want. This year I bought a decent pumpkin carving kit for $6.97. In one of the videos below, they use a drill and different sized drill bits to create their unique pumpkin designs.

Are you ready to create your masterpiece? Let’s have some fun!
